  • DVD edge flickers

    I'm burning a DVD from Workgroup 8 (8.53.3262). The base project is 720p, after editing I switch to a DVD compatible project:

    Video
    Frame Size : 720 x 480
    Frame Rate : 29.97
    Aspect Ratio : 1.2000
    Field order : Lower Field
    Video Channels : YCbCr + Alpha
    Quantization Bit Rate : 8Bit
    Stereoscopic Editing : Disable
    Audio
    Sampling Rate : 48000Hz
    Quantization Bit Rate : 24 Bit
    Channel : 2
    Setup
    Render format
    Grass Valley HQ Standard
    Over Scan Size : 0 %
    Audio Reference Level : -20.0dB
    Resampling method
    Lanczos 3 (Hi-Quality)

    Then I File | Export | Burn to disc

    The resultant DVDs show small side edges that flicker with some related/reflected content.

    I changed some settings in my Blu-ray player and got rid of the flicker (and really wish I had been more methodical in my adjustment process) but I would like to avoid having to tell all the recipients of the project that they need to tweak their players.

    Any ideas for a solution that would avoid this need? I've burned several projects using this workflow over the past few years, but I'm strictly amateur and these projects only pop up a couple of times a year.

    Thanks,
    Fran

    Change your field order to upper field.

      Thanks, Fred. I'll make the change.

      But it appears that the problem may be related to another issue - operator error with a second camera track.

        I do not believe that EDIUS can downscale without those sidebars. In most cases they are just black but I choose to downscale and encode in the full version of TMPGenc external to EDIUS for that reason. There you can choose to scale without the margins but still with correct aspect ratio ( it just crops in a little and you loose a little top and bottom).

          Ron, thanks. I really don't mind a little crop on the sides but I am mixing two cameras and the second cam was not covering the edges of the first cam. When someone convinced me of that it was easy to scale the second cam a few percent and the problem is gone.

          Fred, and Anton of course, I followed that procedure after correcting my coverage issue and the result is very nice indeed. Thanks.
